You’ve finally done it, after years spent looking and researching all sorts of models; you’ve finally found the exact Porsche of your dreams. From the second you slipped behind the wheel and turned it on you knew that it was the car for you and that you can never imagine owning another car again.
Porsche is known as one of the highest brands of luxury vehicle and for good reason; with seemingly endless amenities and comforts along with cutting edge technology, it’s one of the most unique vehicles on the road.
You don’t purchase a Porsche without envisioning yourself owning it for years and years to come and there are many ways to make sure your Porsche stays in peak shape to keep its’ performance as dependable and the experience of driving it as breathtaking as the day you bought it and just because it’s a Porsche doesn’t mean that all those ways have to be expensive.
With that in mind, here are some of the easiest and best ways to ensure your Porsche’s performance doesn’t miss a beat.
- Know Your Porsche- Each Porsche is built to its’ own set of specifications and has unique technology suited for every type of driver. Because of this, each model has it’s own schedule of recommended routine maintenance. It’s important to know what makes your Porsche the model that it is and that you find a service center that’s knowledgeable of Porsche and prepared to service each vehicle with the recommended plan.
- Find a Porsche that Suits You- With a wide variety of models; sports cars, SUVs and more, there are Porsche’s made for everyday commutes and some are made to be shown off on leisurely weekend drives. Knowing what you’re getting your Porsche for will be a great way to find the model best suited to your needs and will help you avoid costly repairs or unneeded service.
- Stick to the Plan- Once you find the service plan for your vehicle, make sure you stick to it. It’s implemented and established specifically to keep your Porsche properly tuned and up to date.
- Don’t Ignore the Lights- It’s common knowledge to most drivers that the “oil change” light is usually just recommended guidelines, not to mention countless other indicators that can pop up and ruin your afternoon faster than you can say “check engine”. While it’s not the most fun way to care for your Porsche, it is one of the most important. Scheduling service for your vehicle to check out and diagnose any light that may turn on is a great way to catch budding issues early and promptly. $40 for an oil change or an inspection now is a lot better than costly engine rebuilds and transmission issues.
- Don’t Cut Corners On Service- You wouldn’t trust just anybody to take care of work on your house or to perform surgery on you, so it’s important to use that same discretion when seeking service for your Porsche. Finding a service center with knowledgeable and experienced auto mechanics that understands the intricacies of each model and knows each step to inspecting and repairing vehicles. Leaving your car with experienced professionals who can properly service it will lead to lower costs and will keep your vehicle finely tuned.
Porsche is a car that has a strong and passionate following, and for good reason. A properly kept and maintained Porsche will give you dependable performance and second to none comfort and luxury.
That can’t happen without knowing the ins-and-outs of your vehicle and finding mechanics that you can trust to just as passionate about your Porsche as you are.
Buying a Porsche is a commitment and when you’re looking to have it for years, whether it’s making daily driving as comfortable as possible or turning heads as you glide over the roads on the weekends, knowing what signs to look for in regards to preventative maintenance and making sure that your Porsche is kept on its’ service schedule, are key to ensuring you do get that dependable performance and that owning a Porsche is the car of your dreams and not the source of all your vehicular nightmares.
